Mushrooms along the Mt Headley trail

These were photographed on September 10th along the Mt Headley trail in the Cube Iron/Silcox Roadless Area at elevations between 6000 and 7000 feet. It had rained heavily several days before.

Recycling

At first look, this mushroom seems to be growing among lichen-covered rocks.

It is actually growing right out of the trunk of a 12-inch diameter downed black cottonwood.

By the looks of the small divots out of the top surface of the mushroom (and the tops of others growing from the same tree) they are also being used as food sources by small critters or birds. Eventually all will be recycled.
